Inspired by your K.I.N.D. contributions

Updated

The entire Last Word staff has been so encouraged by your outpouring of support for the K.I.N.D. fund, Kids In Need Of Desks. With your help, the joint msnbc-UNICEF program has been able to make a significant impact on the lives of school kids in Malawi.

We’re rewriting their quality of education through your generous donations. As of today, we have currently raised $2,874,762. Thank you so much for your charitable giving this holiday season, especially in such a tough economy.

People have been contributing not only through their pocketbooks, but also through the power of the Internet. We were blown away by a video made by Evan Puschak for Youtube’s Project For Awesome. The clip has nearly 190,000 views and more than 10,500 comments. And on Twitter, we noticed the newly activated @Desk4Malawi account. One tweet reads, “we have donated a desk we wished we can do more. We don’t have the $$$ but we have the computer to help spread the word!” Thanks for your help.

Can you help us get past the $3 million hump? Find out how you can get involved by visiting LastWordDesks.msnbc.com or by calling 1-800-FOR-KIDS to donate.
